Duchess Kate sparked a massive sellout of her gingham blouse from Brora

Nailing off-duty chic in a pink gingham top from Brora, Duchess Kate teamed her prairie-inspired blouse with her 'Favourite Cut' jeans from & Other Stories, and unsurprisingly, it completely sold out. 

With the 'Kate effect' wiping her pretty pink blouse from stock, it's now only available to pre-order, but if you're keen to recreate her look ASAP then you're in the right place. We've rounded up the best gingham blouses from Boden, John Lewis, Mango and more so you can dress like a Duchess for less.
